The School of Mary - St. John Paul II
"With the Rosary, the Christian people sits at the school of Mary and is led to contemplate the beauty on the face of Christ and to experience the depths of his love. Through the Rosary the faithful receive abundant grace, as though from the very hands of the Mother of the Redeemer." (Rosarium Virginis Mariae)
"...among the mysteries of light I included the institution of the Eucharist.  Mary can guide us towards this most holy sacrament, because she herself has a profound relationship with it." (Ecclesia de Eucharistia)
Upcoming Marian Retreats to Contemplate the Face of Christ
"Crown her with many crowns!"
Retreat with Fr. Justin Wylie

Oct. 4-6, 2019
Deepen your appreciation of the Marian Dogmas
Meditations on titles of Our Lady
Father Justin Wylie, administrator of the Cathedral of the Risen Christ in Lincoln, is giving a retreat inspired by Bl. Cardinal John Henry Newman, who will be canonized Oct. 13, and seeks to deepen appreciation of the four Marian dogmas of the Church by meditating on the titles accorded to Our Lady in the Litany of Loreto.
Based on a novena preached to the Carmelites earlier this year, Father Wylie will reflect on the four Marian dogmas which include Mary’s Perpetual Virginity, her Divine Maternity, her Immaculate Conception, and her Queenship and Assumption into Heaven. A final conference will be on Our Lady’s role in redemption.

View the Full Schedule and Description
Father Zachary of the Mother of God, SOLT, will return to Our Lady of Good Counsel Retreat House near Waverly for the third Eucharistic Adoration Retreat.
Hosted by the Knights of the Holy Eucharist, this year’s retreat adds a Marian theme: “Mary, Mother of the Eucharist.”  The retreat will help participants enter into the school of Mary, “Woman of the Eucharist” as St. John Paul II called her in his encyclical on the Eucharist.
“We can have a living encounter with the living Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist,” Father Zachary said. “And Mary can guide us to faith in the most holy sacrament, because ‘She who believed’ (Luke 1:45) has a profound relationship with it, and was in a sense the first tabernacle holding the Body of Christ.”

Hispanic Retreat
with Fr.
Christopher Stoley
Oct. 25-27, 2019
Conversación con Cristo: fundamentos de la oración
Our first retreat in Spanish

“In my priestly ministry,” Father Stoley said, “the main questions I get are related to prayer: Why doesn’t God answer? And am I doing this right?
“The reason we struggle with these questions is because we don’t have quiet. God is found in the silence, not the chaos. A retreat takes one away from the noise. We follow Jesus into the wilderness to encounter God, who does answer. We just have to listen.”
Father Stoley recommended the book “Conversation with Christ” by Peter Rohrbach, which makes St. Teresa’s teaching on prayer understandable.
